Nachricht vom letzten Menschen
The Mythology of Michal Martychowiec

 

Nachricht vom letzten Menschen [Message from the Last Man] is an exhibition and a parable about the relationship between faith and freedom.

The tension builds up between two characters from Michal Martychowiec’s new mythology. In the two-work series The incredulity of Saint Thomas and Everything about the contemporary is panda, Jesus’s disciple Thomas and the panda face each other. Thomas is a symbol of the believing doubter, the panda embodies the last man in Martychowiec’s work.
